Clearsnap August Challenge

Clearsnap August Challenge was "bodacious burgundy and dahlia meet spicy mustard and lush greens in this color challenge". Using all of the Susan K.Weckesser ink, I chose her "lush" green color Fresh for the ferns with the Colorbox Tropical Art Screen. For the spicy mustard I saw it as the gold in the picture and used her Shimmer ink to go around the outside of the frame. Just to finish the scene off, the floor was her Cocoa pigment ink, the wording on the chalkboard was the Snow color, and for and the background was Ice. The kitty cat is Paper Smooches Chubby Friends stamp, and was masked in order to add the Dahlia/Magenta/pink ink highlights. She is painted with Smooch Illuminate in order for the colors in the challenge to show up as the primary ones and it looked so pretty! I used seam binding and dyed it with the Dahlia ink as well. The 2 sentiments "for you", and "Grateful" on the inside, were from Blossoming Buds set also by Paper Smooches. The floor outline was the black Smooch ink. Some shading with Copic C1 and C5. By the way, the background color and floor are both Susan K. Weckesser ink Ice and Cocoa. 

Here are the steps I used:
     Stamped Paper Smooches sentiment with Colorbox Color Pop Susan K. Weckesser Snow
                           Added ink directly to Clearsnap Colorbox Art Screen called Tropical
  Masked the cat's body to just add the Dahlia ink to the stripes, nose and eyebrows. 
Frost Smooch painted onto the white and Pink to the eyebrows.
Added ink directly to the  seam binding.
